Indianapolis Colts Player Stats
Indianapolis Colts Odds, Bet Types, and Team History
The Indianapolis Colts reached the NFL playoffs for the second time in three seasons under head coach Frank Reich. At 11-5, the Colts held the same record as the AFC South champion Tennessee Titans, but Indianapolis reached the postseason on a wild card berth due to a lost tiebreaker.
Quarterback Philip Rivers retired following the season and projected 2021 starter Carson Wentz could miss anywhere from five to 12 weeks with a foot injury. That leaves veteran backup Brett Hundley available as well as second-year QB Jacob Eason and rookie Sam Ehlinger to try and fill that void until Wentz returns.
This could put a much heavier workload on the run game. Jonathan Taylor shined as a rookie in 2020 with 1,169 yards and 11 touchdowns. His workload could change with the return of Marlon Mack — 1,091 yards in 2019 — from injury plus Nyheim Hines ’ productivity as a pass-catcher.
Indianapolis has its four top receivers back, which should help ease in whoever lines up under center this season. T.Y. Hilton led the Colts with 762 yards and five touchdowns last year. Michael Pittman Jr. and Zach Pascal each topped 500 yards as complementary options in the offense.
The Colts defense ranked 10th in scoring last season and returns nine players who made eight or more starts. First-team All-Pro selections Darius Leonard and DeForest Buckner will anchor the group again. Leonard had 132 total tackles, seven pass breakups, three forced fumbles and three sacks. Buckner led the pass rush with 9.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.
The Colts open the 2021 NFL season at home against the Seattle Seahawks.

Colts Team Rivals
The Colts went 11-5 in 2020, achieving their most wins in six seasons. Indianapolis went with its third different starting QB in as many seasons, finishing second in the AFC South after dropping a tiebreaker to the Tennessee Titans. Both teams were eliminated in the Wild Card Round of the NFL playoffs.
The Houston Texans finished third at 4-12, missing the playoffs for the second time in six seasons. And the Jacksonville Jaguars started 1-0 before losing 15 straight games to finish with the worst record in the NFL.
Betting on the Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts Point Spreads
Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. Despite reaching the NFL playoffs at 11-5, the Colts went 8-8 against the spread. Indianapolis’ 11 wins were by an average of 12.9 points and its five losses were by 10.6 points.
Here’s an example:
- Texans +3.5 (+110)
- Colts -3.5 (-110)
In this situation, the Texans are 3.5 point underdogs against the Colts. If Indianapolis wins the game by four or more points, a $100 wager on the Colts would come with a payout of $90.91. If Houston won the game outright or lost by three points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.
Colts Over/Unders aka Colts Totals
Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
Let's say the Jaguars play the Colts and the over/under is set at 49 points. A wager on the over would require Jacksonville and Indianapolis to score 50 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 48 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 49 points scored.
In 2020, Indianapolis averaged 28.2 points per game (9th in NFL) and allowed 22.6 points (10th in NFL). The Colts were one of the better teams when it came to point totals, going 9-7 against the over.
Indianapolis Colts Moneylines
At 11-5, Indianapolis was a good play when betting a moneyline. For odds as straightforward as these, the Colts were one of the safer picks last year. Check out this example:
- Colts -130
- Titans +230
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Indianapolis the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Colts odds would mean every $130 bet nets $100. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Titans moneyline was set at +230, meaning a $100 wager would profit $230.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Colts moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, Indianapolis would need to win by three points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds.

Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:
- Jonathan Taylor 2021 rushing yards: 1,250.5
Indianapolis Colts Futures
Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:
- Indianapolis Colts odds to win the AFC South
- Indianapolis Colts odds to win the AFC
- Indianapolis Colts odds to win the Super Bowl
- Jonathan Taylor’s odds to lead the league in rushing
- Darius Leonard’s odds to win Defensive Player of the Year
If you’re confident that the Colts can win the AFC South or that Darius Leonard is going to win his first Defensive Player of the Year award , this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
